## What is a yard?

A yard is a unit of length commonly used in the United States and other countries that have adopted the Imperial system of measurement. It is equal to 3 feet or 36 inches. The yard is primarily used for measuring distances in everyday situations, such as the length of a room or the height of a person. It is also commonly used in sports, particularly in American football, where the field is divided into 100 yards.

The yard is believed to have originated from the length of a person's stride. In medieval times, a yard was defined as the distance from the tip of the nose to the end of the outstretched arm of King Henry I of England. However, the exact length of a yard has varied throughout history and between different countries. It wasn't until 1959 that the yard was officially defined as 0.9144 meters by international agreement.

While the yard is still widely used in the United States, many other countries have adopted the metric system and use the meter as their primary unit of length. However, the yard is still used in some specialized fields, such as construction and landscaping, where it is more convenient to work with fractions of a yard rather than decimal fractions of a meter.

## What is a meter?

A meter is a unit of length in the metric system, and it is equivalent to 100 centimeters or 1,000 millimeters. It is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI) and is widely used around the world for measuring distances. The meter was originally defined as one ten-millionth of the distance from the North Pole to the equator along a meridian passing through Paris, France. However, in 1983, the meter was redefined as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum during a specific time interval.
